Built in 1770 this is a very historic mill house being one of very few with the remains of a laid down mill wheel, the site is 40 meters by 40 meters (more land may be available by separate negotiations).
The house itself was partially de-roofed by the previous owners who sold the roof timbers which is a pity as the mill was stone tiled, the remaining roof timbers would need probable replacement however the walls are themselves very sound.
An ideal restoration project for the right couple wanting to escape city life totally and live in a very remote island away from everyone, however with good connections to the mainland and services here on the island
Planning Permissions in the Orkneys is very simple here and is not subject to the bureaucracy further south as the councils welcome people to rebuild and renovate their properties with easy planning permission and a bigger bonus is that this property is not subject to Scottish heritage rules and regulations like so many of these properties are, so as far as extensions are concerned or even replacing the mill house with a new build will pose no problems.
This would make the ideal holiday home or a permanent home to raise children in, away from the city where ponies could be kept, vegetables grown, and a quieter way of life obtained without the mad stresses of mainstream living.
This could even be used as a studio home for an author or photographer, electricity is at hand and would just need connecting to the property and a mobile home can be situated on the site while renovation work goes ahead.
